Moving to Chandler from Chicago

We will be relocating to Arizona and are looking for places to rent before we try and buy a home. We found some apartments around Chandler Blvd and Dobson Road. Seems as though there are schools nearby, and I was wondering if anyone had any opinion on the area there.

Good area, close to Intel & other high-tech companies. I know Andersen Elementary is right near there, and my old bosses' kids went there. she always had good things to say about that school.

You can research school performance at:


Click on school/district report cards on the left side. If you want, you can search the performance of all schools in the Chandler School District. Also, if aren't sure which specific schools to look at, try looking at the district website for school boundaries:


If you are curious about rental homes (vs. apartments) try:


For even more info on the area & relocating, go to www.cactushomes.com and click on "Arizona Information" (has links to all kinds of helpful relocation resources)

Good luck on your move!
